Transition to Adulthood: Mental Retardation, Families, and Culture.
Blacher, Jan
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v106 n2 p173-88 Mar 2001
This article proposes a conceptual model concerning mental retardation and family well-being during the transition from late adolescence into young adulthood. It suggests that success in residential, vocational, and social realms will influence family well-being directly, while individual characteristics, environment and culture, and family involvement probably will influence family well-being indirectly through their impact on transition success.
